When I was in 11th grade, my favorite subject was American history. And while my tests quizzed dates, names, and places, they also required that I memorize certain passages of Scripture that remind us to be in subjection to our authorities. One night I was especially anxious about a quiz scheduled for the next day. I had to write from memory a large portion from the Bible and I had not studied enough. After climbing into bed, I read the chapter several times. Then I said to my sister,
"Brittany, please ‘quiz’ me over this passage. I need to make sure I know it before tomorrow!” She listened as I stumbled through the recitation.
The next morning Brittany was practically laughing as we greeted each other. “You were sleep talking again,” she told me.
“What was I saying?” I asked. (This is my response every time she tells me I’ve been sleep talking.)
“You were trying to quote that passage you’re going to be quizzed on today!” We both had a good laugh, especially after I passed the quiz.
This amusing story brings me to a topic I have been thinking about quite a bit lately: keeping God in all our thoughts.
